Hi Mike, Firstly, it's great to have you here. Your playing has been a huge influence on me, and a true inspiration. I'm lookin' forward to seein' you here in Atlanta on October 19! I wanted to ask you about your approach to writing bass lines for songs that are based around guitar riffs, as opposed to chord progressions. The band I'm in now is a trio, the guitar player writes all the songs and a lot of them center on single-note guitar lines, or really angular riffs. In most cases, I feel like if I don't simply double the guitar, or harmonize the riffs, I'll get in the way. I know that you solved that problem in Minutemen and fIREHOSE by writing a lot of the songs! But the ones you didn't write, where the guitar parts were more note-based than chordal, how did you approach writing around them and still making the parts interesting? Thanks for your time, and safe travels..
